Free-to-play iOS word game Word Explorer will go live on the UK and US App Stores at midnight tonight.

Word Explorer will be Sensible Software (Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder) veteran Jon Hare's first original game in 20 years.

We first went hands-on with Word Explorer way back in September 2012. Using clues and photos as hints, you have to solve anagrams in this imminent word game.

Bon voyage

If you're successful at solving the anagrams, you earn cash. With that dough, you can buy vehicles to travel farther around the world.

We also got the chance to speak to Hare about Word Explorer at GDC a couple of weeks ago.

As well as going live on the App Store at midnight tonight, Word Explorer will be available for PC later this month.
